Most people think of buying bullion and coins as an investment. There is certainly upside potential to turn a profit with bullion investments.
A more practical approach is to view precious metals as a store of value and wealth. Similar to a savings account at a bank, but without the bank. During troubling financial times it is important to have safe, stable assets in case of a financial emergency. Precious metals like gold bars are physical assets in many of the same ways as real estate or land. Though buying, selling and holding gold bars or coins is much simpler.
When shopping for gold bullion it is important to remember that it is a commodity. Today's gold spot price is based on buying a futures contract containing thousands of ounces. To buy gold at spot price requires an investment in futures and waiting for delivery. Premiums on smaller orders are higher than those with larger quantities.

Gold continues to be a store of value and wealth and a key element for many looking for long term financial security. Gold investments are typically divided between coins and bars.
Gold coins are issued by sovereign governments and often include both modern and historic or antique bullion coins. Coins come in a variety of standard sizes and are measured using troy ounces and in fractions of an ounce.
Gold bars are most often from private mints. For many investors, 1 oz gold bars are a popular choice due to the wide availability and low premiums.
Fractional gold bars are the most popular and offer versatility and flexibility. Premiums for fractional gold bars are relatively higher. The smallest of sizes will have the highest premiums.
When investing in precious metals the most important factor is to buy with the lowest premiums. The lowest gold premiums can often be on gold bars and vintage gold coins.
Vintage gold coins offer tremendous intrinsic value as well as historic consideration. Popular historic gold coins for investors and stackers include Pre-1933 American Gold Coins such as the $20 Double Eagle and $10 Gold Eagle. Fractional gold coins like the 20 Francs and British Sovereign are affordable, easy to stack and at times have the lowest premiums of other fractional gold.
